Because wood has usually a higher weight, larger pallets, which are made only of wood, in the own transport are much heavier, what manifests itself in higher transport weight even without additional transport material accordingly.

American Counterparts

Article number franchising in India. The clash of different cultures. As you will read in the course of this article, there was Donald Cranford, the franchise right blogger, recently discovering”in India. In particular he interested in this rapid growth and the future prospects of franchising on the Asian continent. “Descriptive manner, he tells from personal experience with food, land and people: for years I listen to now, that the twenty-first century to the Asian” century will be. Actor in this development will be the two countries of China and India. One reads this or similar statements in recent years increasingly in various financial newspapers and magazines.

And slowly, you begin to wonder, but if all these allegations now fact or fiction are more. Directly conducted in the frame of my recently on behalf of franchise I was lucky enough to visit the two cities of Mumbai and New Delhi had travel. After all, what I see there and was allowed to experience, can I in good conscience say that the economic future of India will belong to, particular with regard to the franchising. But before I tell you my personal experience in India, let me cite some facts demonstrating why franchising in India is such a huge success with excellent future prospects: India’s population has now grown to over 1 billion people, live three times more people in India than in the United States in direct comparison. This development continues, India will be the third largest economy in the world in a few decades.

Yet the success can be explain the franchising in India alone due to the size of the population. The continuous upward movement of the Indian economy is driven mainly by an emerging middle class, which turns to more and more of the Western world, particularly America. During my wanderings through the night life of New Delhi, the similarity of Indian nightclubs took me to their American Counterparts very surprised.
